2018 Toyota 86 GT Black is tactile art

Toyota's aging and sole sports car (until the Supra launches) still offers a fresh driving experience.

The Toyota 86 began life in 2012 as the Scion FR-S, and while the car is aging, its driving dynamics feel fresh as ever.

Powered by a Subaru-derived 2.0-liter flat-four engine producing 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque, the 86 is quick, but more grunt would be nice.

The 86's LED high- and low-beam headlamps are some of the best in the industry.

The spirited sports car received a refreshed LED taillight design in 2017 when it became a Toyota-branded product.

The interior design looks a decade old, but for $28,585 as tested, quality is commensurate with cost.

Its 7-inch audio display does not feature Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

A 4.2-inch TFT Multi-Information Display is offered on all 86 trims above the base model (GT, GT Black and TRD Special Edition).

The 86's seats could use a little more lumbar support, but are supportive everywhere else.

Trunk space is only 6.9 cubic feet, but appears more generous than that.

Our tire marks are off-camera, but the 86 remains as driftable as ever.
